CHECK IT :: Richard Thompson's "Cul De Sac" Premieres In Charlotte Observer
Oh yes! As we announced last month, HeroesCon guest Richard Thompson's strip Cul de Sac is premiering in our local paper, the Charlotte Observer. In fact, it premiered today, I believe--I usually read it online (shhh!), but Shawn and Shelton both love the feel of newsprint on their fingers, and they read it today. As a daily reader and LOVER of this strip, this might not be the best place to start new readers off, but trust me, once you get down with the rhythm you'll be hooked. And remember, if you like it, let the Observer know! From what Richard tells me, this is a test run, and if they don't get enough reaction they may pull it in favor of more Garfield or something. These Observer guys are tough--why, they don't even run Gasoline Alley, the nation's oldest continually running strip, and its artist (Jim Scancarelli, our buddy) lives and works right here in Charlotte! I'm just saying be vocal, but be careful, too. And enjoy Cul de Sac!
